C. S. WESTCOTT & CO.'S UNION PRINTING-HOUSE, 

Ko. 79 JOHN STREET. 

186G. 



This Cemetery was incorporated as the "Tarrv- 
town Cpmetery," but the republication of tlie (bllowin^ir 
letter, in 18G4, suggested to the Trustees that it 
would be a most fitting memorial of the distinguished 
author of it to conform to his wishes even at that late 
day. They accordingly applied to the Legislature of 
the state for authority to change the title, which was 
most readily and unanimously granted, and thence- 
forth it became the "Sleepy HoUoav Cemetery." 

The letter was addressed to Lewis Gaylord Clark, 
then editor of the Knickerbocker Magazine. 

My Dear Clark : 

I send you herewith a plan of a rural cemetery projected by 
some of the worthies of Tarry town, on the woody hills adjacent 
to the Sleepy Hollow Church. I have no pecuniary interest in iti 
yet I hope it may succeed as it will keep that beautiful and 
umbrageous neighborhood sacred from the anti-poetical and all- 
levelling axe. Besides, I trust that I shall one day lay my bones 
there. The projectors are plain matter-of-fact men, but are 
already, I believe, aware of the blunder which they have com- 
mitted in naming it the " Tarrytown," instead of the "Sleepy 
Hollow" Cemetery. The latter name would have been enough of 
itself to secure the patronage of all desirous of sleeping quietly 
in their graves. 

I beg you to correct this oversight, should you, as I trust you 
will, notice this sepulchral enterprise. 

I hope as the spring opens you will accompany mo in one of 
my brief visits to Sunny Side, when we will make another trip 
to Sleepy Hollow, and (thunder and lightning permitting) ha\e 
a colloquy among the tombs. 

Yours, very truly, 

WAsni.vGTON Irving. 

New York, April 21, 1849.

SLEEPY HOLLOW CEMETEIU 



AT 



TARRYTOAYN, 

ON THE HUDSON KIVER 



In the year 1848, the citizens of Tarrytown, aflectcfl 
by the frequency of funeral processions from the city 
of New York and other places, on their way to bury 
their dead in the grave-yard of the old Dutch Church 
— which had been a burial-place of the dead for more 
than one hundred and fifty years, and had become 
literally covered over with graves — were moved to 
extend its limits, and enclose within them tlie beau- 
tiful grounds of which this cemetery is formed. 

The church-yard was so crowded that one friend 
could no lono-er be buried there bv the side of an- 
other ; and, in the prospect of death, the fomily cii-- 
cles could not indulge the hope that their ashes 
might mingle in the place of the dead. 

Considering the sentiment, so creditable to mankind, 
that induces them to secure and beautify a family 
burial-place, an association was formed and incorpo- 



8 

rated, under an act passed by the Legislature of the 
State of New York, on the 27th of April, 1847. 

The Trustees purchased twenty acres of land ad- 
joining the yard of the old Dutch Church, which 
they laid out with roads and avenues, and erected 
one of the best and most substantial receiving tombs, 
of solid masonry, that is to be found in this country. 
It is located beside an old fort, which is in almost 
as perfect a state as when occupied for defence by 
our Revolutionary heroes. 

The grounds are well adapted to the purpose for 
which they were selected, being elevated, light, and dry. 

Beauty of scenery on every side is presented to 
the eye of the visitor. From the higher grounds of 
the cemetery is a view of the Hudson River, with its 
banks of grandeur and beauty, its bosom dotted with 
sails and enlivened by swiftly-gliding steamers. 

North is Yerplanck's Point, and thence far away 
to the south, a distance of nearly forty miles, is a 
view of the noblest river of our country. 

The villages of Nyack, Piermont, and Tarrytown, 
the spot on which Major Andre was arrested and the 
place of his execution, are all within the view, while 
Sleepy Hollow, made memorable by the genius of 
Washington Irving,"'' with all its simple beauty and 
pleasing quietude, is in close j^roximity. 

* This distinguished author was for many years a resident of 
this neighborhood, and took a prominent part in the foundation 



■» 



Passing IVoiu these grouiuls lo those of tlic inoiv 
sacred old grave-yard, the visitor ponders the past 
and the eventful doings of the dead beneath liim. as 
he looks upon the chiselled stones set to mark the 
resting-places of the good and great of earlier times. 

While other cemeteries boast their richly-sculptured 
marble and high towering shafts of granite, here the 
visitor looks upon monuments that the "rude fore- 
fathers reared"' in pure simplicity and in Christian 
faith of immortality. The marks of the chisel that 
wa^ guided by the hand of the artisan more than a 
century ago, are still distinct and legible on marble 
that has braved the weather and the waste of time 
wdiile generations have risen and departed. 

The Hudson River Railroad brings this cemetery 
within an hour's ride of the Thirtietli street station- 
house, in New York citv ; and, considering the com- 

of this enterprise, having been one of tlie original cori)orators. 
His remains now repose in this cemetery, within an enclosure 
which he himself selected ; and in the latter j^ears of his life he 
brought hither his nearest departed kindred, by whose siJe ho 
now lies interred. The rigid simplicity observed by him in the 
adornment of his chosen ground, the itlain slabs which he erect- 
ed over their graves, and which affection has imitated in the 
white marble that marks his own resting place, are but exem- 
plifications of his memorable sentiment, and call to mind tliese 
utterances from his own lips : " The grave should be surrounded 
by everything that might inspire tenderness and veneration for 
the dead, or tliat might win the living to virtue." 



10 

fort afforded the passengers on this road, the prompt- 
ness of the cars to the tmie of starting, and the 
confidence that funerals will not be delayed (as they 
oftentimes are in crossing ferries), prove conclusively 
that no more time need be consumed than in the 
passage to most other rural burial-grounds. Com- 
munication by steamboat is also now so well arranged 
for safety and speedy travel, that a cemetery at Tar- 
rytown possesses advantages of accessibility une- 
qualled by any otlier in the vicinity of New York. 

On the arrival of the cars or boat, public car- 
riages to the cemetery may be secured in a few min- 
utes. 

Such is a brief outline of the character and situ- 
ation of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, now hallow^ed as 
the resting-place of Washington Irving, Persons dis- 
posed to purchase a family burial-place are invited 
to acquaint themselves with its advantages of access 
and the features of its locality.
